Dominica embarks on fisheries and aquaculture policy

first_imgLocalNews Dominica embarks on fisheries and aquaculture policy by: – April 30, 2012 Tweet Share 129 Views   no discussions Photo credit: fisheries.noThe Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources, Physical Planning and Fisheries is embarking on a project to formulate a fisheries and aquaculture policy for fisheries management and development in the Commonwealth of Dominica. This seven month project (April to October 2012) is sponsored by the European Union under a programme called Strengthening Fisheries Management in African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Countries (ACP FISH 11),. The Consulting firm is SOFRECO.Currently, the management and governance of the Fisheries Sector is without the guidance of any clear documented policy framework through which actions and decisions taken within the sector are based and influenced. As such, the route to achieving sustainable economic benefits, security of livelihoods, food security and marine resources utilisation and conservation is often unclearly and undefined. There is the need to clearly define the policy direction for fisheries conservation, management and development, poverty alleviation, food security, employment creation and security and a commitment to good governance.The Fisheries Division is directly responsible for coordination, implementation and provision of technical guidance to this project. Regional bodies (CRFM and OECS) will provide additional technical support and review the resulting draft policy document.Under the project, a Technical Team comprising Fisheries and Maritime experts, Policy makers, Fishers and other critical stakeholders have been formulated to provide technical support to the consultant and review of the policy document.As part of the consultant’s terms of reference (TOR) there are three key components for getting as much information and consultation from a broad spectrum of persons at all levels.These components are;– Technical Committee meetings– Fisheries stakeholders meetings, and– Fishers consultationsThe support of key stakeholders like the National Association of Fisherfolk Cooperatives (NAFCOOP) is crucial to the success of the end result. To accomplish this task, two Technical Committee meetings have been held and key Stakeholders have been interviewed with a view to getting their input. The support of the NAFCOOP has been very proactive and helpful. Consultations have been arranged for the following places and times with fishers.– Roseau community consultation – April 30, 5:00 pm– Portsmouth community consultation – May 2, 4:00pm, and– Marigot community consultation – May 4, 5:pm Consultant Dr. Joanna Clare Gascoigne a Fisheries Specialist in Marine Conservation Biology will be in Dominica until May 7, 2012 for the first round of discussions and meeting with stakeholders, fishers and others. The project is expected to come to a close by August 20, 2012. Press Releasecenter_img Share Sharing is caring! Sharelast_img read more

Ferguson tipped for bright future

first_img Ferguson, who scored 72 goals in 273 appearances for Everton, has been promoted to Martinez’s first-team coaching staff on a permanent basis. The 42-year-old former Scotland international has spent the last two-and-a-half years working with the club’s under-18s, while his role this season has also included one day a week with the first team. Press Association Manager Martinez said: “He’s developing into a really exciting coach. He’s been a big influence in the work he’s done with the under-18s and I do feel we need his influence in the first-team environment. “He’s an Evertonian and he’s going to be a big part of the first-team staff from now until the end of the season. “His development as a coach has really impressed me and I think he will become someone very special in that first-team structure. The players respect him and we’re going to get a lot out of his work.” Ferguson’s reputation on the pitch was as a hard man rather than a student of the game, but Martinez has been hugely impressed by his development as a coach. “Duncan is really taking that role with real desire and he’s someone that can achieve as much as he wants in that area,” he said of Ferguson’s future prospects in management. “I’ve seen a huge difference from the beginning of the season until now.” Ferguson described the opportunity as “a dream come true”, telling evertonfc.com: “Everyone knows what this club and the supporters mean to me and if the manager thinks I can make a contribution then I am delighted to do so. There’s a lot to play for this season, it’s exciting times and I am made up to be a part of it.” Everton return to Barclays Premier League action with a trip to table-toppers Chelsea on Saturday after reaching the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with victory over Swansea last weekend. Roberto Martinez has backed coach Duncan Ferguson to play a major role for Everton during the rest of the season and believes the Toffees cult hero could go on to become a top manager. The Toffees badly need a result at Stamford Bridge after slipping eight points behind Liverpool in the race for fourth place, albeit with a game in hand on their city rivals and fifth-placed Tottenham. Liverpool are only one point adrift of Manchester City in third and four behind Chelsea but Martinez sees the title race as being between Jose Mourinho’s side, City and second-placed Arsenal. He said: “When you’ve got one team with a large difference of points, you can easily overcome that, but when you’ve got three teams in the final third of the season, it’s quite difficult. “Nothing is given, there’s a lot of points to play for. But clearly the three teams are in a very advantageous position and everyone else will rely on how good we can be from now to see where that takes us. “You need to be realistic. The top three have a great opportunity to win the title, the next four teams have a great opportunity to get into that fourth place and then you’ve got a real decisive battle to try to stay in the division.” In the last eight of the cup, Everton will travel to Arsenal, and there has been disquiet among Toffees fans over their ticket allocation of 5,186. Martinez is sympathetic, and said: “We’re disappointed because it’s a major football event and we want to have as many fans as we can. We are a club that travel in huge numbers. “It’s something that’s down to safety reasons and there’s not much we can do. I understand the frustration from the fans and it’s just making sure now that, for the ones who are fortunate enough to be with us, we make it an enjoyable afternoon.” last_img read more

Fonte queries Marriner appointment

first_imgSouthampton defender Jose Fonte believes Andre Marriner should have been dropped after last weekend’s high-profile gaffe as the referee prepares to officiate Saints’ Barclays Premier League clash with Newcastle. Despite that, Professional Game Match Officials Limited decided to give Marriner a chance to get over the mistake in Saints’ clash with Alan Pardew’s side – a match centre-back Fonte does not think he should be refereeing. “It is a question for debate, personally my opinion is yes (referees should be held accountable for mistakes),” the Portuguese said. “If we make mistakes as players, we are punished. We get dropped. “I think obviously some might argue that it is good or not, but I personally think they should get dropped as well and don’t referee for a couple of weeks to realise what went wrong. “I don’t know, I just think when the mistake is very, very bad you need to stop and think what can I do better.” Fonte’s comments will likely cause ripples, yet he insists the fact Marriner is taking charge is no “big issue” to the players. “He has a tough job to do,” he said. “I am sure he will want to be perfect on Saturday and we players need to focus on our game, so there is not much that we can say about that.” Southampton have a lengthy injury list heading into the clash. Jay Rodriguez (knee), Morgan Schneiderlin (hip muscles), Victor Wanyama (leg) and Steven Davis (groin) are all doubts for the encounter at St Mary’s. Nathaniel Clyne (groin), Kelvin Davis (hip) and Maya Yoshida (knee) are definitely absent, with the latter facing six weeks out. Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul is out of the trip and facing several weeks on the sidelines. The Holland international suffered a knee injury in Tuesday night’s 3-0 home defeat by Everton and will sit out up to three games, with Rob Elliot taking his place. Full-back Davide Santon could return after recovering from tonsillitis, but full-back Mathieu Debuchy (groin), midfielder Sammy Ameobi (ankle) and striker Loic Remy (calf) remain on the sidelines, although leading scorer Remy is due to resume full training on Monday. There will be plenty of familiar faces for ex-Southampton boss Pardew on his return to the south coast, with Adam Lallana and Rickie Lambert in particular having blossomed since he worked with them. However, he is happy enough with his current lot as he plots a rousing end to an eventful campaign. The Newcastle boss said: “Southampton, everybody is saying, have had a fantastic season. Well, we are still above them and we want to stay there. “We have had that question mark ever since we got 36 points, were we just going to see the season out? That’s just not the way I am, I wouldn’t let that happen with this team.” The official was caught up in a bizarre case of mistaken identity in Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat of Arsenal, sending off Kieran Gibbs rather than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a deliberate handball. Marriner apologised for the mistake at Stamford Bridge, which led the Football Association to transfer the sanction to Oxlade-Chamberlain and then overturn the decision as he had not technically prevented a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Bundesliga Top Four Make 20m Euros Cash Pledge to Other Teams

first_img“We want to send a signal of solidarity to all clubs in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2,” Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.The last Bundesliga fixture was played on 11 March and football in Germany’s top divisions was suspended with immediate effect on 13 Marchbecause of Covid-19.Former West Germany striker Rummenigge added: “In these difficult times, it’s important that the stronger shoulders support the weaker shoulders. With this, we also want to show that football is standing together right now.”Dortmund chief executive officer Hans-Joachim Watzke said: “We have always said that we would show solidarity if clubs, through no fault of their own, should run into difficulties that they can no longer overcome themselves.“Borussia Dortmund is currently having a major impact on society through a wide range of initiatives. And naturally we are prepared to help out other professional football clubs if it is ultimately a matter of cushioning the financial effects of the pandemic.”Christian Seifert, a spokesman for the DFL executive committee said: “The initiative shows that solidarity is more than just lip service in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2.”Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski and his wife Anna have contributed one million euros(£923,900) to fight the virus, team-mates Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich set up a fund called We Kick Corona and contributed one million euros between them, while Manchester City’s German winger Leroy Sane has also made a considerable financial donation.On Wednesday, players and directors at Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund agreed to take temporary pay cuts.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The four Bundesliga clubs in this season’s Champions League have pledged 20m euros (£18.3m) to support fellow German teams during the coronavirus.Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen will forego their share of the national media revenue and donate the remainder from their own funds.The German Football League (DFL) will decide how the money will be distributed.last_img read more

My Aim is to Beat Guys Like Tyson Fury

first_imgHe was born by Nigerian parents and spent much of his early years in Nigeria before going to the UK to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Last Saturday, Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua defeated Charles Martin to claim the IBF world heavyweight title. With Nigerian boxing battling for revival, Kunle Adewale looks at what it could have meant for the country had the 2012 Olympic gold medalist opted to compete for his fatherland instead of BritainBut for GOtv that is working to revive boxing in the country through its GOtv Boxing Night, which enters Season 7 on May 1, the game was virtually dead. Aside from the likes of Olanrewaju Durojaiye, Gifted Cole and probably Segun Ajose, no Nigerian boxer is in a good stead for a world title for now, Nigeria is in short supply of men with the “sucker punch.”However, there are Nigerian-born boxers abroad who are winning laurels. One of them is the British boxer, Anthony Joshua, who recently won the IBF world heavyweight. Interestingly, Joshua, whose attempt to represent Nigeria at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in China was allegedly frustrated by the Nigeria Boxing Federation, NBF, had played down his IBF world heavyweight  title win, saying the Olympics gold he won four years ago would be more cherished.It was an emphatic, flawless statement from Joshua, the super heavyweight Olympic gold medalist of 2012 cementing his professional credentials when many said he had been rushed into this challenge for the IBF title way too soon. In fact, it was the belt holder whose keen acceptance of the money on offer – rather than choosing a less lucrative but easier option elsewhere – that aroused the more meaningful speculation that he was cashing in while he could. And so it panned out.“I ain’t gonna get too carried away,” Joshua said of his 16th straight stoppage win from as many fights. But there are others who will do it for him, including his promoter, Eddie Hearn, who was quick to describe him as a global sporting superstar.“Every fight gets better and better,” the new champion said. “It’s not just about power. It’s about speed and precision. Martin was big and brave enough to bring his title to the UK. Respect to him.”Joshua admitted that he had felt more pressure going into the Olympic final in London in 2012 than he felt last Saturday night when he took the belt from American Charles Martin, which he won by second round knockout.“The Olympics was different level. That was crazy. That was different altogether, but it moulded me to deal with these occasions better. I would not downgrade yesterday, but for the fact that where I’ve been, coming through my last fight, the adrenaline that was involved, that helped against Martin, the boxer said.”Joshua was still a novice – in amateur terms – during the Olympic Games.“Because it was in London, a home game, it got you used to the noise, the pressure. And amateur boxing at the Olympics is a serious business. These guys are elite. They have been around for years fighting. It is tough at that level,” he added.Joshua recalled not just the pressure of expectation on British athletes to win in London, but being three points down against defending Olympic super heavyweight champion, Roberto Cammarelle, who was the defending gold medallist.“How many Olympics did he go to? Three? He knew his stuff. I boxed him in the worlds, so I knew he was a good fighter. So the pressure was there, and you had to deal with it. In these professional fights, you can look yourself away in the changing room, but at the Olympics, you can hear the crowd.“During the whole Olympics, the loudest noise was at the boxing. How many people were in the athletics stadium? Yet the loudest noise was at the boxing. How mad is that? That’s why I said about that final that it was like ‘Sparta’ night, like something from the film 300. Knowing you are locked away behind stage. You can hear the crowd roaring for blood and you’re fighting next. That was gladiator stuff. That was class, he said.”Last Saturday night, and the buildup, explained Joshua, had felt like a “smooth” experience. The 26-year-old also felt as if he had boxed better against Martin.In his previous fight, last December, he had had an emotional build-up against London rival, Dillian Whyte, followed by a seven-round war in the ring.“Yeah, I was more patient, looking for the shot, setting it up, feinting. Camp was good and I had great sparring, so when I got in the ring I looked back and thought about how I fought against Dillian, but that’s just how we go to war.“It’s weird because when I stepped in the ring on Saturday night I thought to myself did I really go to war like that with Dillian in here? I could have just outclassed the guy. Boxing is a sweet science – why did I go to war with a guy like Dillian in the ring? I must have looked like a novice the way I fought that night. This was the time to show how good I really am and I fought like a bit of a clown.“The thing I wanted to do with Martin was take what he had. That was what I wanted to do. I knew he wasn’t going to beat me. “I can improve from here because I’m going to fight better fighters at an early stage. Just 34 rounds of boxing to win the world title. But with two more years, when it comes to serious boxing I should be in my prime. I should be handling my business and beating guys like Tyson Fury in four fights with ease,” the IBF champion said.Hearn, however, believes that Joshua “would walk through Fury now” and aims to make the match up with the two-belt world champion as soon as it is viable, which could be late this year, indoors, or outdoors in a stadium next Spring or summer.There will be no holiday, and Joshua could be in camp again in a fortnight.“No holiday, no, I want to fight again soon if I can. It wasn’t so much the fight that was hard but the camp was. I just need to recover from camp, which should only take a week or two weeks. Hopefully I’ll fight again in early July –maybe July 9. I’m sure Eddie Hearn (Joshua’s promoter) has got dates pencilled in somewhere, a Plan A and Plan B. I’ll hopefully fight soon if possible and keep the momentum going,” Joshua stated.Joshua also got a sense of his growing fame with celebrities and sports figures ringside last Saturday night, and by the reaction from the public.“Yeah, yeah, it’s growing. That’s what we’re saying, it’s more like mums and kids and stuff. Eddie said it yesterday and it’s true. Parents are actually saying to their kids to go to a boxing gym. Most parents didn’t like boxing but now they’re advising them to go and do it and take an interest, watch a bit of boxing,” he said.Joshua was born in Watford to a Nigerian mother and a father of Nigerian and Irish descent. He grew up for much of his early years in Nigeria and went to the UK to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, Joshua was called ‘Femi’ by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name ‘Oluwafemi’. He excelled at football and athletics and broke the Year Nine 100m record with a time of 11.6 seconds.Meanwhile, NBF chief coach, Obisia Nwankpa has denied the claim in some quarters that the boxing federation frustrated Joshua in his attempt to represent Nigeria at the 2008 Olympics.“His (Joshua) is not the first. We’ve had similar cases like that before. Most of our athletes living or born abroad, anytime they want to represent Nigeria, they do not go about it the right way. Moreover, they believe by virtue of having lived abroad, they could just walk into the team without going through the trials. That is not acceptable,” Obisia said.Continuing, the man who was called golden gloves because of his finesse in the ring said it was impossible for Joshua to make the Nigerian 2008 Olympic team with the presence of Durojaiye in the team.“As at 2008, we had a boxer that was very strong called Durojaiye. At that time Joshua was not better than the Nigerian boxer. Even the fact that he won a world title does not translate to his being better than Durojaiye. He just happened to have a faster shot at the title by virtue of living in the United Kingdom, where there are opportunities. Durojaiye only moved to America recently and he is now the WBA number two contender,” the former Commonwealth champion said.  Obisia, however, agreed that Joshua would have added value to Nigeria’s boxing had he competed in the colours of Nigeria.Another boxing veteran, Jeremiah Okorodudu, blamed Obisia and his cohorts in the boxing federation for denying Nigeria a great asset in Joshua.“He was not taken serious when he wanted to represent Nigeria. He would have added a great value to Nigeria boxing. At least he would have won for the country the elusive Olympic gold medal in boxing,” Okorodudu said.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

ELEAGUE puts $250,000 on CS:GO Major Final Rematch

first_imgELEAGUE, the esports tournament operator run by Turner and IMG, is set to place a hefty amount of cash on one CS:GO match. The best-of-three match-up, has been billed: ‘Clash for Cash: The Rematch’,. It puts the current CS:GO Major Champions Astralis up against the runners-up Virtus.pro.The show-match, scheduled for June 16th, puts on a winner-takes-all match for $250,000 (£193,000). Set to be broadcast on TBS, Twitch, YouTube and their in-house Live Game Command system, there will be many ways to keep an eye on the match. The original final saw Astralis pull off a reverse sweep, as they took Virtus.pro to all three maps to claim the title in an extremely close fashion (12-16, 16-14, 16-14).The CS:GO Major hosted by ELEAGUE was the most-watched CS:GO tournament in history, with 1.026 million concurrent viewers breaking Twitch records, as well as 3.6 million total reach on TBS. It’s  unlikely that this will match the figures but clearly TBS are looking to bridge the gap in CS:GO content.The announcement comes just weeks after ELEAGUE announced their ‘CS:GO Premier’, the next CS:GO league they’re hosting which gets underway on the 1st September. Information about the Premier is still sparse, with details on prize-pool, invites, format and qualifiers still yet to come.This will be the first return to CS:GO for Turner since hosting the Major. ELEAGUE is currently playing host to the Street Fighter V Invitational, a $250,000 tournament currently in it’s final group stage before play-offs.The two CS:GO sides have faced different paths since crossing in January. The Danes, Astralis, have been moving up and up, still widely recognised as the best side in the world. They’ve finished top four in the four tournaments following Atlanta, including winning at IEM. Virtus.pro, on the other hand, haven’t been so successful. After winning DreamHack Las Vegas, they failed to leave groups in their next two tournaments.Esports Insider says: Interesting moves coming from ELEAGUE, as they bring a big value prize-fight to CS. Being the largest amount of cash on offer for one game in the title’s history, it’s definitely a game worth watching. It’s also notable that the prize on offer for just one game was once the entire pot for a CS:GO Major!last_img read more
